Lake Fenwick Park Special Rules
PARK ALERT UPDATE: As of November 19, 2018, water quality tests at Lake Fenwick reveal that it is SAFE. Parks visitors and pets may once again enjoy water-contact activities such as fishing or wading.
- Standard Park Rules
- No lifeguard on duty. Swim at your own risk.
- No radio controlled boats.
- No motors except electric fishing trolling motors.
- Removal of stocked Grass Carp prohibited. Other fish OK.
Grass Carp have been released in Lake Fenwick. GRASS CARP ARE ILLEGAL TO FISH.
These sterile (cannot reproduce) non-native fish were introduced to help control and eradicate Brazilian Elodea, an aggressive non-native aquatic weed that has spread throughout the lake and is exacerbating water quality problems. These fish start at 12" – 16” in size, but can grow to be up to 25 lbs. - much larger than any other fish currently in Lake Fenwick.
Signs have been posted at the boat launch. Park users and residents should report to Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife if anyone is poaching these fish (it is illegal for fishermen to take these fish out of the lake once we have introduced them). If you have questions please call 253-856-5551. Thank you.
